‘Kathua rape and murder case shook the whole country, the entire world’
Srinagar, Apr 30 (KNS): Reacting to the maiden remark of the new Deputy Chief Minister Kavinder Gupta on Kathua rape and murder case senior PDP leader and official spokesman of the government Naeem Akhtar said “Kavinder Gupta’s remark is a careless comment given the fact that the Prime Minister and the President of India have condemned this criminal act in strongest possible words.”
Talking to Kashmir News Service (KNS) Naeem Akhtar said “the careless comment by Deputy chief minister is in total contradiction of the statements of the Prime Minister and the President of India and the concern shown even at the international level triggered a change in the law making this criminal act a punishable offence and the punishment to such dastardly crimes is not less than the capital punishment.
The grave concern shown by the both the central and the state governments is the passing of an ordinance both at the centre and in the state and the ordinance was widely hailed both within and outside Jammu and Kashmir state. The government has proved that it won’t compromise quality of investigation and determination for justice to the Kathua victim.” (KNS)
